'New' Car Opinions...
Alrighty...I'm taking my ass back to college at the ripe age of 25 and need a car to get me there and back everyday. I've narrowed it down to a few choices...
1999+ Mustang GT (Under 60k miles)
1997+ 528i BMW (60k-110k miles)
Late Model MR2 (I'm leaning away from this option though, no car for the money) (15k-30k miles)
2000+ Toyota Celica...not so sure though.
Here is what determined my choices. First and foremost, I must have RWD. I've always had it and don't want FWD crap. So that eliminates Honda HAHA. Second, I want 20+ mpg. Also, I want to stay around the $15k mark. Each of those cars fall in that price range. Cars must be manual as well.
Anyone own any of these and can give any feedback? I'm looking for reliability opinions. I understand with the BMW there will be electronic gremlins forever, which is fine as long as there arent mechanical problems. Go ahead and dis the stang that's fine...build quality is kinda lame I know compared to the other choices...however a lot of bugs were ironed out by the time that model came in (and I can get Ford parts dirt ass cheap hehe, and I can work on it). Celica I know is FWD, but Toyota reliability marks it up there. Unfortunately, both the Celica and MR2 are getting discontinued next year, which will drive parts prices up.
I want whichever car I choose to be problem free (proper maintenance of course), be able to handle heavy traffic conditions (heat mainly), and last 10 years. 5 years while im in school and 5 years while im paying off debt! ahahahaha.
Spew out any opinions you have please! Just try to stay on topic. And NO...no friggen honda will be placed in my garage EVER!
